UK Government Drops Aid Over Sinjar in Iraq

Many Yazidi Kurds continued to suffer as they made the perilous journey through the Sinjar Mountains, as the US and UK governments announced they would pull back from planned rescue efforts. They believe reports of 150,000 Yazidis trapped were overestimated and that there may be 4500 or so still on the mountain. Here, the UK Defence Forces drop aid over the Sinjar Mountains on August 13. The aid included essential supplies to help the Yazidis. Credit: YouTube/defenseheadquarters
